Campus wifi maintenance and outage, CS Maintenance for Thursday 1/27, and phishing scam info

***Campus wifi maintenance/outage on Thursday, 1/27*** 

On Thursday evening, 1/27, campus wifi services will have a brief outage (5-10 minutes) as part of the upgrade process to our Aruba wireless system. Wifi users will experience a brief interruption, but should automatically reconnect once the system has restarted. 

***Additional Computing Service Maintenance Activities for Thursday, 1/27***

Beginning at 9:00 PM MST Thursday evening, Computing Services will be installing January Microsoft Windows updates to all Windows-based systems, including employee, lab and TEC Classroom computers. These patches will force a reboot, so please log off and leave your computers on at the end of your work day Thursday to assist with installation.

Additionally, we will also be installing January updates on all Windows production servers beginning at 9:00 PM MST. Throughout this time, users will experience intermittent outages (5-15 minutes) and brief interruptions to network services as systems reboot.

***Phishing scam making the rounds***

As Spring semester ramps up, Computing Services wanted to remind our students and employees about the ongoing threats posed by phishing attempts and email scams. One that surfaced this morning was a document shared with faculty/staff entitled, “New Transcript Update for January 2022.docx” from “Office Admin” with a personal Gmail account. This document is a phishing attempt; do not click on the document.

Universities often face an increase in the number of phishing attempts they receive at the start of a new semester, so continue to be vigilant and take the following action to prevent phishing attempts and email scams:

  • Do not open or respond to emails that you suspect as being a phishing attempt or scam.
  • Do not open attachments that have been sent to you by unknown sources or click on unknown links.
  • Be mindful of the sender’s email address and any web links that you are sent. Even a single character out of place may mean that it’s fake.

When in doubt, don’t click.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. If you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at (719) 587-7741 or contact us via email at computingservices@adams.edu.

Have a great day,

Google Meet recording ability discontinued + Computing Services Maintenance for Thursday, 1/13/22

***Ability to record Google Meet sessions has ended***

In Spring 2020, Google announced that they would offer their Google Meet premium recording feature for free to assist educational institutions in their transition to remote learning due to the pandemic. As of Monday, January 10th, this premium recording feature expired and is no longer available for use by ASU faculty and staff.

Any previously recorded meetings will remain in Google Drive unless the file owner deletes them, and you will still be able to view recordings. However, moving forward, if you have a need to record meetings, check out Zoom, which allows you to record meetings and download recordings.

***Computing Services Maintenance for Thursday, 1/13/22***

Beginning at 9:00 PM MST on Thursday evening (1/13), Computing Services will be installing January 2022 Microsoft patches/updates to our test systems for future deployment. We anticipate no impact for client-facing systems.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. If you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at (719) 587-7741 or contact us via email at computingservices@adams.edu.
